Farewell to Lost!

I'm back from my travels, and I look forward to catching up with everyone.

* Congratulations to altariel on the upcoming release of her new official Doctor Who novel, Doctor Who: The King's Dragon! Click to see the cover art and find ordering information.

* From io9: "7 New Genre Shows Coming Out This Fall." What do you think? Terra Nova and The Event sound worth a try to me. Fortunately, Chuck and Fringe will be returning, too.


It's hard to believe that tonight is the end of Lost. (It's great to reminisce by reviewing the list of all of the literary works and philosophers referenced in the series.) In honor of the final episode, here's the music video for one of my favorite Lost filk songs, "Oh Benry" by Barenaked Hurley.



Miles: [referring to Hurley's movie script] What the hell is this?
Hurley: I'm writing Empire Strikes Back.
Miles: Uh, I'm sorry. What?
Hurley: It's 1977, right? So Star Wars just came out. And pretty soon, George Lucas is gonna look for a sequel. I've seen Empire like 200 times, so I figured I'd made life easier and send him the script... with a couple improvements.
- Lost, "Some Like It Hoth"

Lost has been a hell of a ride. I'm going to miss it!

So am I! What a remarkable send off...

Terra Nova does sound like fun. Unfortunately, it looks like more unfeasibly good-looking people. I actually smiled when I saw the words: "starring as yet unknown (fox)" :-D

LOL! Excellent point. Speilberg is really hit or miss with me, too, so that also makes me a bit hesitant. But it's worth a try, at least.

I like the sound of Terra Nova, too. I still miss Earth2 which had a similar premise.

I love Fringe, but am a little sad that Flashforward got cut, as although it was glitzy and I didn't buy how quickly the world recovered from the blackout, it did hook me and I was intrigued to see how it would develop.

I remember Earth 2! I'm sorry that it's gone. It will be interesting to see how Terra Nova compares.

After we watched a bit of FlashForward, we determined it would probably be better viewed in several large chunks rather than a weekly basis, so we didn't keep up with it faithfully. It's a shame it didn't have time to develop fully. The premise certainly was intriguing.

It's hard to believe we're at the end! I'm really going to miss it, although I'm glad that they made the decision to end it and finish the story, unlike so many other shows in the past that just fizzled out or got canceled. Great storytelling is so rare on TV these days!

I know what you mean! And I agree 100%: better that it went out when it was still so good instead of fizzling out with a whimper. And what a finale, eh? I'm impressed! But I'll miss it.

I will miss it, too, quite a lot. I don't think there will ever be anything quite like it. Not that they won't try. ;)

Two thumbs up! :) And you?
